When single mother Elizabeth Caldwell and her twenty-one-year-old daughter, Marina, vacation in Italy, they both find their lives forever changed by the sights that they see and the people that they meet. Original.

Kensington Books
In this warm, evocative novel set against a breathtaking Italian backdrop, bestselling author Holly Chamberlin explores the complexities of mother-daughter bonds, and the gift of second chances. . .

Marina Caldwell is thrilled to receive a two-week trip to Tuscany as a college graduation gift. That is, until she realizes her mother wants to go with her. The gulf between idealistic single parent Elizabeth and cautious, controlled Marina seems too wide to bridge, even with the aid of chilled Prosecco and mouthwatering panforte.

But amid the magical sights and scents of Florence, Marina's careful plans for her vacation--and her future--are thrown into chaos, and Elizabeth's long-held assumptions crumble. Soon a world of unexpected possibilities unfolds for both--buoyed by newfound courage, unshakeable love, and the stirring beauty of a Tuscan sky. . .

There was so much going on that I felt like the trip was much longer than two weeks. Having gone on some trips with my own mother, I could totally relate to the mother - daughter dynamics. I did stop reading the italicized sections at the beginning of each chapter as I found them distracting and annoying. Overall, a pleasant read.

Great view of mother-daughter relations.
